Analytical and experimental aeroacoustics; aviation noise; subjective noise annoyance
What would you like UKAN to do for you?
Provide access to a forum to disseminate state-of-the-art research to relevant UK stakeholders
How would you like to contribute to UKAN?
Support future aeroacoustic workshops
Doak Laboratory - anechoic chamber housing three aeroacoustic research rigs:
1) Flight Jet Rig - round coaxial open wind tunnel for the study of in-flight mid-to-high subsonic flow-surface interaction noise
2) Resonance Rig - rectangular closed wind tunnel for the study of low-to-mid subsonic flow-cavity and in-duct noise
3) Bleed Valve Rig - round open wind tunnel for the study of high pressure valve noise
Software or numerical codes:
RANS codes: Fluent and TAU
LRT = RANS-based jet mixing noise prediction code
DQ = jet-surface interaction noise prediction code
MUSTANG = valve noise prediction code
